  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic


  • Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Once melted whisk in flour. Allow to cook for 1 minute.
  • Slowly whisk in milk. Keep whisking to avoid lumping. Bring to a low boil then reduce heat and allow to simmer.
  • Stir in pepper, salt and granulated garlic. Continue to simmer, stirring occasionally until gravy thickens 15 - 20 minutes.


This gravy will thicken considerably while it cools. To thin it out, I warm it back up for about 30 seconds in the microwave or whisk in a little more milk.
